Brian joined the New Hope Church staff in August 2016 where he serves as the Student Ministries Pastor. He previously served as the High School / Contemporary Worship Arts Pastor at Oregon City Evangelical Church for 6 years and has been serving in youth ministry for over a decade, answering the call and passion of bringing young people to Christ and helping them grow in their faith. Brian was born at St. Charles Hospital before moving to the valley when he was only 2 years-old. He is very excited to be back in Central Oregon.
Brian oversees 6th grade youth through young adult age ministries. His direct ministry is with high school students and young adults, but oversees and advises the Middle School Pastor as well as youth interns. He is bound to fill in on the worship team from time to time and will teach and preach outside of the youth department when opportunities arise.
Brian has been married to his wife Lisa since 2010. They have a beautiful daughter Gray who was born in February 2017 and don’t forget Teri furry daughter Milly, a Labrador / Shepard.
Brian loves the outdoors! Whether he is hiking, surfing, sailing, snowboarding, biking, or just swimming with some friends in a refreshing lake, Bend is obviously a huge playground. Brian enjoys photography and is also very musical and loves to play the guitar, piano, and sing.
